BBC presenter Andrew Neil censors Green Party from BBC reports – Pride’s Purge

The BBC’s Andrew Neil is a Tory supporter, writes Tom Pride.

His first job was as a political adviser in Edward Heath’s Conservative Government.

And perhaps it’s because he’s so right-wing that he’s openly censoring the Green Party from his BBC reports.

Here’s Neil’s graphic from a couple of days ago showing the state of the major parties in the latest opinion polls:

The only problem is that in that particular opinion poll, the Green Party were in 4th place on 8%.

Neil, however, decided to just exclude them from the graphic:

    Can Ofcom do anything about the BBC? They are getting way too arrogant now and regardless of whatever complaint to them, it’s met with a “f*** off, peasant” type of response.

      Apparently not, as the BBC is supposed to be self-regulating. Having fallen foul of this behaviour myself, I do agree that it needs an independent overseer instead.
